The way someone writes a haiku says a lot about them, in my opinion. Did they just snap a sentence into 5-7-5 syllable groups, or did they put some thought into it, to be cunning or witty.

And thus I pose a challenge to our candidates (and what the hell, players too). Please post only once, and explain in haiku form what the Council means. To you, to us, to EVE, to pants, whatever. For example:

"Someone to stand up
and speak about the issues
to scary vikings"

zoolkhan does not dance to haiku
he does not dance on a pole
zoolkhan candidates to improve the game
to ease those many players pain
not for his ego an own fame
rather to find in rotten ideas the hole.

to sacrify his time, to keep the story in line
and consistent , to support the balance
to make a lousy rhyme and annoy hardin
with an occasional whine in that i am persistent.

edit: no native english speaker

Nice one Smile

Being completely crap at poetry (read into that what you will Smile) I threw down the gauntlet to some CVA members:

RedLion came up with this:

Beer, women and ships!
Hardin deliver of course!
Hail CVA newbs!

On a slightly more cynical note Eucarid came upw ith this one:

With nerf bats swinging
Creators reach for honor
Fluff trumps truth once more.
